For the moment being the following link is to the pdf made from DLI:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/m7r04djmedy17gu/SPEIJER%201973%20MLBD%20Sanskrit%20Syntax%20reprint%20%5BDLI%204990010197932%5D%20OCR.pdf

This is the MLBD 1973 reprint.
I have OCRised it for English.
Anybody could OCRise it for NAgarI?
Then one just needs to "copy" and "paste".
Suppose all people on this list take time to proof-read 5 or 10 pages out
the approximately 400 pages of the book ...
Best.

PS: Who else than specialists can correctly proof-read this book?
